A few weeks ago, a colleague showed me a technology that was fascinating in and of itself, but the strategic ramifications are even greater.
For those of you who are technically inclined, look at these links:
https://hub.docker.com/r/microsoft/dotnet/ https://hub.docker.com/r/microsoft/aspnet/ https://github.com/aspnet/home These are, respectively, the Linux docker images for running Microsoft .Net and ASP.Net apps, and the open-source repository.
This is quite cool technically. After all, apps compiled for platform A, especially tightly closed platforms like Microsoft, usually aren't meant to run on platform B!
